Volunteer Work Days:

Volunteers building strawberry beds at August 2020 Work Day
Volunteers creating compost pile at September 2020 Work Day

All are welcome and appreciated at our monthly workdays.  They are usually held the last Saturday of each month, weather permitting, but you should check Facebook for the latest information. Typically, they start at 9am and last until noon.  We’d love to see you — stay for a bit, or for the entire morning!
